City Gates Conference: 100,000 Hours - Columbus OH
Saturday, August 2, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Over the course of our lives, each of us will likely spend about 100,000 hours at work. Some of us will use those hours to just get by. Some of us will use them to get ahead. Be assured that God has something much bigger and more important in mind. The City Gates Conference challenges us to approach our everyday work as a sacred calling.
